Why are you attending the AP® Annual Conference this year?
This is the fourth AP Annual Conference I’ve attended. The AP Annual Conference is the best professional development we can get as AP teachers, bar none, anywhere. This conference gives the teacher so much; we get so much out of every session we attend. I’m sitting in sessions with my iPad, tweeting and constantly sending information to my principal. Also, I am presenting for the first time, which is exciting.
What is one thing you have learned so far?
That I’m behind the times on the AP Capstone™ program. I have been so involved with pre AP and AP European History, so I’m learning about that.
What do you hope to bring back to your school?
Information, information, information. I have been begging my administrators to come to this conference for years. I think they would learn so much about the AP program and its value for teachers and for students.
Anything else you want to say?
I just love it here.
